     I am hosting my second annual jewelry party on November 29th.  Here is a little sample of what I am selling.
     This year should be easier because I now have all the props I need to set things up.  I'm very excited and this has help me focus on my beading.  I LOVE IT!  It's so relaxing and fun.
     Have a great day.

     It's been almost a year since my last post.  Easily the most difficult year of my life.  We lost my sister Heather to Pancreatic Cancer.  She was the most Magnificent person!  Our hearts ache every day.
     Heather loved that I made jewelry and was always encouraging me to put myself out there.  She heaped on the love and praise.  I know she would be happy to see that I am getting back to blogging and beading.  I love you Heather!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the star shine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die.
By Mary Elizabeth Frye

I find this poem very comforting.  Heather would have loved it.

More Sky Jewels

     I just finished shopping for my family who live far away!  Yay!  I shopped mostly on etsy and had the presents shipped dirrectly to my family.  This is the first time I have done this and it is the bomb!
     I just finished this necklace.  I fell in love with the pendant from Moreskyjewels and it sold before I could purchase it.  I convoed Marie-Noel and she was kind enough to make me another one.  She is awesome.  Let me know what you think of him. :)

    I've been really productive lately getting ready for my first jewelry party.  I am excited and anxious.  I've been trying to keep a balance between making the funky jewelry I love and some more conservative jewelry with neutral tones and simple design.  I realize that not everyone wants to wear more daring designs. 
     I tend to feel vulnerable when putting my jewelry out for view.  But my confidence is growing and what's important is enjoying the process right.
     November 12th is the big day.  I will be sure to share how it went.  In the meantime here is more of my work for the party.
